Aerial Photo vs. Google EarthNow that Google Earth is available for Mac, I've been having some fun. This screenshot is one result.

On the left is an aerial photo of a town in Alberta, just north of Calgary, which I took in 2004.

On the right is the same view reproduced in Google Earth, which reported the apparent altitude as about 8 km, or 26,000 feet, which seems about right.
